Who Are We
The Cat Corner is a genuine No-Kill, Not for Profit rescue & re-homing service, that has been working with cats & kittens in need since 2007. Starting as a small giftware business, we gradually grew into an Incorporated Association as a Rescue group and then became a registered Charity and official cat shelter.
Our Mission Statement
Our Mission is to be a leading Animal Welfare Charity and to promote the No-Kill goal. We aspire to a world where No-Kill is known as an achievable goal, where no healthy animal is destroyed and every cat that comes into our care is adopted into a permanent loving home.
What do we do?
We rehabilitate and re-home cats and kittens through our shelter in Ferntree Gully, as well as through our partnership with Petbarn in Ferntree Gully, Nunawading, Ringwood, Fountain Gate and Chirnside Park. Our shelter also has cat supplies and giftware available for purchase with all funds raised directly benefiting the cats and kittens in our care.
Where do our cats and kittens come from?
Our cats are mostly from country pounds, where they are usually destroyed 8 days after arrival. We work in conjunction with foster carers & drivers who collect these ‘death row’ kitties & bring them to The Cat Corner for rehabilitation, vet work and re-homing.
What Does No-Kill Mean to The Cat Corner?
At The Cat Corner, No-Kill means that any animal in our care has a right to life, and unless they are suffering without a decent chance of recovery, they will not be put to sleep. This does not mean we let animals suffer, we believe in euthanasia where it is the kindest option for the animal, but we do not kill cats based on a need for space, their temperaments, age, or physical disabilities.
